Adult social care
Social care and support are services to help you if you
- need practical support because of illness or disability
- care for someone receiving social care and support
Social care and support are usually paid for by either people who need services, their families or, in some cases, the council.
Day services and day care are a great way to meet others and get out of the house for a few hours. It includes a range of activities, the chance to socialise and may include a meal.
You might not think of yourself as a carer. But you probably are if you're looking after someone regularly, including your spouse or a family member, because they're ill or disabled.
If you or someone you know has been in hospital or had an illness or fall, you may need temporary care to help you get back to normal and stay independent.
